After last year’s highly successful final concert of the Sinfonia Varsovia Academy with chamber arrangements of Beethoven’s symphonies, students of this year’s 12th edition of the project continue this Beethovenian series. How does the legendary Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Eroica, sound in a version for 10 instruments? The composer himself was convinced that satisfyingly. He himself developed and allowed others to develop his symphonies for smaller ensembles. The two outermost movements of Eroica, arranged by Carl Friedrich Ebers in 1818, will be performed in the second part of the evening, while in the first we will hear extensive excerpts from Johannes Brahms’s Serenade No. 1 in D Major, Op. 11. The composer – enamored of the models of Haydn and Beethoven – first created a version for nine instruments, and later transcribed the work for a symphony orchestra and made his debut as a young conductor. The serenade was a great success at the time. Undeservedly overlooked in concert programs today, it is proof of the young Brahms’s high skills and, above all, music that gives great pleasure to listeners. The young performers’ concert will open with a Baroque rarity: the Concerto for solo trumpet and strings by Giuseppe Tartini, another example of an interesting adaptation – this time from a violin original.
